Every time we ride Moose River Plains, we stop at the Bear Trap for the BEST burger and a warm up at the Fire. Our first time there we didn't expect much but we couldn't wait to go back the next winter!

If you are looking to get a good burger and fries or another standard bar food item, then this is the place. Simple, clean, and fast service. Don't let the outside keep you from going in.

Don't judge the book by the cover......this establishment may not look like much from the outside but the food will suprise you! All homemade, the burgers are big and juicy....not those premade burgers.
